in development, that is a much more risky prospect. they did not work that program that way. i am also not entirely on board with your claim that boeing could just turn around and take what was a prototype and suddenly be able to displace the f-35. much furthert so along in development. remember, the prototype f-35 is nothing like the play we are flying right now even. -- with its have to plan, whatever that might be, would have to go through an entire development process,, with a machine tooling, go through the flight testing, go through the changes, and all the things that go on. let's incorporate all the different requirements that have changed since boeing has left the program here to remember, the air force, navy, marine corps -- they all agreed on a certain type of plane when they signed onto it. , they'llhereafter begin to work to give back all of those technologies they lost in the compromise.
